A Trip To The Market

This morning we loaded up the car and headed to the Farmer's Market.  It is nothing like Capital Market in Charleston, but it is still better than the produce section at Kroger.

Melissa and I go here every Saturday to get fresh Peaches and Apples from Romney, WV.  We get fresh pork and beef from Southwestern PA and Goat Cheese from McHenry, MD.  The veggies are execlent and for the most part, just as cheap as Kroger.

We are now back at The Whiskey Path hiding from the traffic of the WVU Football Game.

A View From The Front Porch

I walked outside this morning with a cup of coffee to survey the weather here at The Whiskey Path. To my suprise we had vistors. I thought that by the time I got inside to get the camera that our guest would have fled, however, as you can see they were more hungry than scared. What a way to start the day, a cup of coffee and some guest for breakfast.

The Whiskey Path

In the time of Prohibition folks from around the surrounding area (West Virginia and Pennsylvania) would walk the "Whiskey Path" to come to the Stewartstown area distilleries. That path happens to be on the property that my wife and I own.

Melissa and I have been out here for going on two months now, and I am still waiting to see a ghost from those times. We are lucky enough to also have a Mason-Dixon Line Marker as well, even though we have not gone out to find it, we are still waiting to see a ghost from that time too.

We moved into a very history rich area. The property we have touches on Cheat Lake. Before the Lake Lynn Dam was built and the valley flooded my great grandparents farm touched on our boundaries.

I hope to keep this updated with the goings on in our lives, share stories, recipes and a photo or two. Until then...
